Getting back to (blogging) basics

Back to blogging basics

Hello internet

You may have noticed (or not – that’s okay too) that I’ve been fairly quiet on the old blog here. One of the main reasons is that I’m now the mama to a baby boy! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that my account is essentially just a Matthew Stan account now. I can’t help myself, he’s just too cute.

The other reason I’ve been so quiet is that, if I’m being 100% honest, I’ve fallen out of love with blogging.

Currently - Instagram blogging Update

Hello friends, family, and gentle humans!

It is I, the Uphill Writer. I have returned after a brief hiatus from the blog after a (short) Instagram experiment.

At the start of Feb 2018, I wrote a post where I chatted about the little experiment I was going to attempt. You can read all about it here, but basically, I was going to attempt to blog exclusively on my Uphill Writer Instagram account for the rest of 2018.

Here’s the thing, I failed at that Instagram blogging experiment. Ha! I did a few posts (which I’ll list below), but overall, it was just too restrictive. There’s a character limit, no formatting, and it just didn’t scratch that blogging itch the way I had hoped it would. So I’ve decided to kick that idea to the curb and I’m back here on the blog where I belong!

I’m on holiday at the moment so I thought I’d do a quick ‘currently’ catch up post now that I’m back.
